snipers in u.s. history. he once shot a target more than a mile away. he was a highly decorated navy seal, seven medals of bravery. >> michael hastings joins us with this segment as well. when you read in kyle's history you read that he had five tours in iraq. there are reports that he killed as many as 160 people. what are your thoughts on this story? >> i think it's very much laudatory that he was trying to help a 25-year-old veteran with ptsd. kyle had great success with his book. he became somewhat of a celebrity in the military community, and he was trying to use that in a positive way bringing a kid out to a shooting range. i know people might think that's odd, why would you take someone with ptsd to a range and around gunfire. there were people who would go back in the war zone to relive the experience but instead have a positive result at the end of it. there are different things that people are trying to do to combat those things and it sound like that's what they were trying to do in this case. >> did you know chris kyle at all? >> no, i reached out to him when i did a story on

's going to happen. one recently talked about the navy. we're going to have less ships. they're going to move less. they're going to train less. they're going to be maintained much less. therefore, they're not going to be able to deploy to respond to threats and project power as necessary. the constitution mandates providing for national defense and our military guarantor of our freedom. if we don't maintain that, everything else goes way. at the same time every veteran understands there is fat to be cut from the defense department. let's reform it. the nature of these sequester cuts is to take a meat ax to the budget. let's reform the defense budget and look at the largest drivers of our deficit in mandate spending programs those on the left end of the spectrum don't want to cut. >>brian: they took gates cuts and are going try to up them by $500 billion. leon panetta takes over from them. has the same fear. here's what he said yesterday on "meet the press." >> we've got a plan for that possibility because there are so many members saying we're going to let it take place, but i have t

when he was a pilot in the united states navy. is he a good pilot or bad pilot? yes or no. there could have been a malfunction in one of the aircraft. they are trying to pigeonhole chuck hagel as a dove, someone who is not going to seek the strong interests of the united states, and isn't schooled up on policy. i remember that surge in iraq. there was a raging debate in this country as to how involved we would have to get to finish off what we started in iraq and senator hagel was against it at the time because he was thinking about the amount of resources and money we were going to spend that wasn't being accounted for. and so it's a complex answer. it's not a yes or no answer which, of course, mccain likes to put into a box. the other thing about syria, where is the march? where is the cry from the american peel right now to go get involved in somebody else's war? we don't have the resources right now. you can't put a number on death before we do get involved in something like this. and the american people aren't yearning to get into another conflict in syria. it's not our fight righ
